  • Amount Per Serving = 1 bar
  • Smartpoints : 11

Ingredients :

  • 2 cups almonds
  • 1/2 cup walnuts
  • 7 Medjool dates, pitted
  • 1/2 cup Oriya Superfood Protein Medley
  • 1/3 cup cacao powder
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened coconut flakes
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 3/4 cup canned coconut milk, light
  • 2 tbsp chocolate chips
  • Coconut Topping:
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil
  • 2 tbsp chocolate chips
  • 3 tbsp coconut flakes

Preparation :

  • 1 Line 8″ x 8″ square baking dish with parchment paper and set aside. Toast almonds and walnuts in a small skillet on low-medium heat until lightly brown, about 5 minutes. Stir frequently and watch closely not to burn. Transfer to a food processor and process until finely ground.
  • 2 Add Medjool dates, protein medley, cacao powder, coconut flakes, salt and process until well combined and dates have been somewhat ground into small pieces. Add coconut milk and process until combined. My food processor had a hard time working at this point, so you might want to mix dough with coconut milk in a bowl. Add chocolate chips and pulse or stir just enough to incorporate.

 

  • 3 Transfer dough into previously prepared baking dish, flatten with your hands and then level with spatula, pressing dough into the dish all the time.

 

  • 4 In a small pot, combine coconut oil and chocolate chips; simmer until melted, stirring constantly. Pour over the bars, tilting baking dish and coating bars evenly; sprinkle with coconut flakes. Freeze for 45 – 60 minutes or refrigerate for 2 hours. Remove bars from the dish by holding onto flaps of parchment paper and place on a cutting board. Cut into 12 bars and enjoy chilled.
